As already mentioned by londoncall earlier, Harmonik Force is pretty much built around a section lifted wholesale from Unknown Artist - Force EP. It's still a wonderful and hypnotic piece of mellowed-out Hardcore however, and the perfect antidote to the rest of the EP's intense battering. An excellent all round release.

Worth noting as well that the drums in this release were later chopped-up by Doc Scott in 'Here Come The Drumz' on Nasty Habits - As Nasty As I Wanna Be. All part of the ongoing cycle of the Hardcore swap-shop...

The 'Proximity' is such a rave anthem with its proto Jungle / Techno style just busting out the speakers. Its got all the hallmarks with the lovely acid lines, shuffling breakbeats, Altern 8 style sweeping bass, uplifting stabs and the classic piano breakdowns.

'Harmonik Distortion' is one hell of a tune with its amazing dirty breakbeats and horn baselines that savage any dance floor. The beats are so crisp and the effects used are crazy making those drum kicks bounce around, layered with high pitch stands and moody acid lines. This is what hardcore techno was all about.

Hedonistic Rave music - superb

Was and still is all about The Proximity and Harmonik Distortion imo. I like the pad sounds, depth and structure. Not too obvious sounding either. Has more of a "The Hypnotist, Caspar Pound, Marc Williams, Rising High Records" sound than your typical chipmunk hardcore of the time. Even the momentary piano doesn't sound out of place on this - and believe me, I'm not the biggest of piano fans by any means. No silly unnecessary vocals either.

Harmonik Distortion is proper, underground, sinister, rough hardcore business with a techno edge. Not too fast either. Just the right speed to be played with similar styles. Or speeded up to play alongside more jungle techno themes.

This is a real gem. Beautiful dreamy pad as the intro. Real touching vocals. Just an all around master piece.
